CaymCaym is a demon considered to be the chief of Hell in Germanic mythology, according to some authors; however, it is uncertain if this demon is pre- or post-Christian in origin, because he normally does not appear in common lists of mythological Germanic beings; it has also been suggested that his name could derive from the biblical Cain, father of all monsters according to Beowulf, but it could not be proved. He can imitate the voices of all animals and manifest himself in human form when answering questions. In art he is depicted as a man with hirsute hair, beard and moustache, both hands upward, wielding a sword, wearing bracelets, and showing a fierce expression; he wears trousers and boots, and at his feet are some animals and pieces of wood.
